Best language for simple program that calls windows explorer
Posted on 2014-08-07
I need to write a simple program that takes input from the user and opens a folder on the network based on that input.
Enter client name
user enters A, B, C, D, etc.
The program then opens Windows explorer to a folder "F:\Data\Clients\A" if the user enters A as the client name. The point is to make it quicker to get to the A folder instead of having to click on F:, Data, Clients, A.
So my question is what is the best programming language for this? The computers are all running Windows 7. A widget? VB Script, C#, Visual Basic? I will have to learn the language but since my needs are very simple I don't think learning the little I need to get what I want done will that that long.
Also I could see the same (or similar program) being added to the Send To to make it very easy for users to save files to a client's folder. I think it would only requires slight modification to create this
